The wife and I booked a tour with this company and it was amazing!!! We lucked out and got Maggie as a guide. OMG! You should request her. I would recommend her as a guide because she will allow you to do things things that most guides won’t try. We performed 360’s, drop surfings (we got pulled in 4 times at Double Suck which was truely an awesome experience) that just left other guides in awe. We got some some MAJOR splash time thanks to Maggie. The facilities are good with curtained changing stalks for women. The store was full of shirts and last minute essentials. We enjoyed our trip very much and want to say again THANK YOU Maggie!!!

A group of 3 of us did the full day (upper and middle river) rafting trip with Jared as our river guide. 2 of us were first time rafters, and 1 had done this trip 20 years ago (so all beginners). We had so much fun, the river and weather was beautiful. Jared was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, kept our boat safe while still hitting the class IV rapids and having a lot of fun. The lunch was well done under COVID restrictions. Would 100 % do this trip again!

This was our first time ever white water rafting. We were fortunate enough to have Mary Catherine as our guide. She made our whole experience awesome! It was perfect weather with a little bit of rain that actually kept us cooled off. She explained each rapid and had us feeling like pros. We will be making this an annual event from now on. Thank you to Mary Catherine and to Quest Expeditions! We can't wait until next time. 😊

The Ocoee offers great rapids that are damn controlled so you know you will always have a great ride.
The views are amazing, the rafting is better with many class 3 and 4s throughout, and there are also
places where you can jump out of the boat and float down the river. I highly recommend and must give a
shout out to Jared for showing us such a great time. Maggie,who was our guide 3 years ago, was also great.
I highly recommend.

We are a very fit family. My spouse and I have rafted some challenging courses. What should have been a fun and exhilarating day turned into injuries that will take a long time to heal. Back and neck to name two.

Company policy dictates that a guide only has to go through the Olympic Course one time in a training raft. We were the first tour. When we hit the Course it was clear the guide was in over his head. His commands were not given in a loud manner and furthermore he had no idea what to tell us to do. A hard fall and smashing into rocks injured us all. What an epic fail for corporate. Totally not employee's fault. He stated several times that day that he had only had one run of training.

I watched other guides' techniques as we sat by the river and ate lunch. What we were told to do looked nothing like the other rafters. Their experience took the elderly through the course unscathed.....effortlessly. It's not an Olympic Course for nothing.

So I give this company an epic fail. Shame shame shame on them. Signing the waiver is well played. To bad for us.

We are sorry your trip didn't meet expectations. We regret you didn't bring your concern to the attention of the office after your trip. That gives us the opportunity to understand what took place and improve our services. Our goal is to always keep everyone in the raft, however there are inherent risks and unfortunately on rare occasions rafters find themselves in the river. We evaluate risk and safety seriously. Your statement concerning our training is absolutely incorrect. We require all guides working the Upper Ocoee to have previous whitewater experience on the Middle Ocoee River before they begin to train on the Upper Section. All guides are required to have multiple runs on the Upper Ocoee and additional runs through the Olympic Course. They also must complete numerous safe and correctly guided training trips before being approved as a guide on both sections of the Ocoee River. We would never release a guide to take our guests on a river trip with very little experience or training and absolutely never with one training trip.

Jared was our guide for the Full Ocoee River Trip. Our 1st experience rafting could not have been any better! Quest, by far, was a notch above the other rafting companies out with us that day; how the guides maneuvered the river, handled different situations & worked together. We had 3 couples, (40's & 50's yrs. old) in our group, that had never rafted before. We all had a GREAT time. Our guide, Jared is knowledgeable of the river, skilled in guiding the raft, personable, truly seems to love his job and wants to ensure his group enjoys their trip. All 6 of us Highly recommend using Quest, along with requesting Jared for your guide.

We took our daughter for a last bit of excitement before going to college the next day. It was a fantastic. We’ve been numerous rafting trips and this ranks at the top. Tom our guide and others were funny, informative and personable which made it sad when it ended but we are already planning another trip next month with my other daughter for the full day trip. Can’t go wrong with Quest.

From booking our trip for an extended family of 9 to requesting to purchase photos the next day, this was an amazing experience. Our participant age ranges are from 12-50, and only 2 had previous rafting experience. We called the day of the trip and Quest was extremely friendly and accommodated our request to have our party of 9 on the 2:30pm tour of the Middle River. We checked in and since we filled out all of the waivers online, we were able to explore the property & played a little volleyball. At 2:30pm, we were called to the equipment barn to go through some safety & overall trip explanations. As we walked through the barn, we picked up our oar, helmet & life jackets and boarded a bus. During the 20 minute trip to the drop zone on the Ocoee River, we were divided into groups and given more instructions. Our guide, DMJ - David Michael Jackson - was AMAZING!! He is a 7th grade teacher and gave us all sorts of information about the gorge as we went through & made us feel really comfortable by telling us at every point what we would experience. Prior to launching, he gave us very thorough instructions on how to maneuver the oars, what his commands would be etc. This is not for the feint of heart, however, the two 12 year olds had just as much fun as all of us. As a parent/aunt of the kids in the raft, I felt very comfortable knowing DMJ would make sure the kids were as safe as possible during the journey. WE HAD A BLAST! I HIGHLY recommend this organization for an exciting & safety conscience white water rafting experience!

This trip was amazing! My wife was scared to do this as none of us had ever done any whitewater rafting before. That wasn't a problem. You don't need to be athletic or strong to do this. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and capable. They will teach you the few things that you need to know to make it a successful trip. Our guide, Michael, was great. He was an excellent teacher and very patient.
I recommend doing the full day trip. We were afraid it would be tiring but you don't have to work as hard as you might think. There are some good rapids spread out throughout the entire course that makes the full river trip really fun.
The lunch they serve is good too. Various meats and cheeses, peel and eat shrimp, assorted chips, and cookies.
We really loved it that they had someone taking great pictures of us from the shore to purchase after the trip. They took some nice action shots.

Ask for Tim! He was amazing and ridiculously knowledgeable about the river. I’m pretty sure he knew where every rock was. We witnessed several different rafting companies and how they handled the river and different situations, they were nothing like Quest! We came with several friends who had used Quest for the last few years and have only had outstanding experiences. We would highly recommend using Quest. See you next summer!
